Subject: Smokin' Lazarus!
I found this show as one of the most downloaded on archive. I can see why. The recording is sweet, clear, and full. And the "Lazarus" in the second set is mind-blowing.

Great show and recording. I'm an old deadhead who found out about moe. while downloading Grateful Dead shows. Over the last five years I've become quite a moe.ron.

Subject: songs to check out

If you like the slower, groovier stuff, check out shows with Faker>Kids jams, and like the previous post, you'll find some great Happy Hour Hero>Seat of My Pants jams. Good, funky, groovy, rock. But, i can't agree more with the last comment: you gotta check out a lot of shows start to finish to find the "gems". I highly recommend spending a few bucks and buying Warts and All Vol. 1. The sound quality is highly worth it.

Haven't got the show yet but will.

To answer the question below...Seat of My Pants is a great song with a pretty chill melody. I would suggest just downloading more shows and listening to them straight thru. Best way to find out!

This is probably one of the better non SBD recordings I have heard.

Question for you die hard moe. fans....I am just getting into moe. and thier music. Lost along the way is one of my favoite songs I have heard....what other songs are chill and with a good groove like LAW?
Reviewer: squizzislame - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - October 22, 2008
Subject: This show....
This show has to be in my top 2 favorite moe. shows, great set list, sweet jams, good atmosphere,meet a few cool dudes, the orpheum is my favorite place to see a show. And the cops at the end did not bother me at all, I was still able to buy everything I wanted and not get in trouble for it. All is well that ends well ya know?

But did any one see those mimes out side the show, they were scary as all hell. I kept on giving them my quaters too because they moved every time I did. I hate mimes who pick on kids trippping to give them money.

Amazing show. So many great moments. This is the first moe. show I have downloaded in a while and I'm very impressed. Alex, thanks for the awesome recording! It really does sound like a soundboard/matrix. Fantastic work.
Reviewer: griffin3141 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - March 6, 2008
Subject: One of the greatest live shows ever
Was at the show and was fucking blown away. After Lazarus, I turned to my friend and was just like... that was the best song I have ever heard. Wow.... thank god for this recording. I will remember that night forever.

As for the cops and gas, I managed to ditch right as the show ended, so the cops weren't out yet when I left. Were they doing all that much, cause ppl were buying and selling shit within 10 feet of them and they didn't seem to give a shit before the show.

Akg has a bit more bass, but you cannot beat the stereo field produced by this recording . Outstanding pull !!
Reviewer: moemark - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - February 29, 2008
Subject: Sweet show, Excellent recording!
Seems moe. turns the wrenches and gets tighter and tighter as the tour continues. Fantastic show, and the sound quality of this one is superb. Can't tell you how much I appreciate the effort involved in recording / transferring / and uploading shows. Thanks!

Ya know, this recording really has great sound. It's just CLEAR! I'm increasing impressed with the quality stuff you folks are putting up--Alex, it's just getting better and better--thanks so much for filling my mp3 and my head!
Reviewer: jamfan89 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - February 11, 2008
Subject: any videos?
This was a sick concert, probably the best moe. show I've been to yet. The drum solo in brent black was amazing. The only bad thing about the show was the cops raiding the nitrus at the end. Does anyone have any more videos from the show? I would love to see them.

And balcony seats is the place to be

balcony seats were not the bomb.
Reviewer: Goofybojangels - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - February 9, 2008
Subject: balcony seats are bomb
What are you talking about, balcony seats are bomb, depending on where you are sitting i guess....i had top row so i had the entire aisle to dance in up top.

who cares about the balloons out in the street, it's been happening for the past couple of years now and it happens everywhere. All over park street i got asked by every guy you wouldn't make eye contact with if I wanted any and every type of drug. I just laugh at it because cops are everywhere and yet tons of people still walk away with fist of balloons. my friend got a couple i just passed because i was already gone and didnt need anything else that was going to blow apart my brain. I wonder if any of you saw me, tall kid with long blond hair, grateful dead shirt that was tie die and had the bears spinning into the center.

Just dont let them get to you.
Reviewer: Paul Barry - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - February 9, 2008
Subject: Best show ever!
I agree with the other reviews here, this is probably the best of the 20-30 moe. shows I have been to. Check out a little video clip here:

moe. rocks solid, theres no doubt about it. We could go on and on about the set list which is amazing... bb> bring you down> bb to end the first set.. amazing... but this recording is one of the best i have heard of in quite some time... props

Nice Crisp sound, good tracking, everything you want in a recording.

Beedogs do it again. Thanks for the oven bags after the show AP.
Reviewer: NHtransfunkgroover - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - February 5, 2008
Subject: Great show
Theres always cops at the Orpheum when shows like Ratdog, Phil, moe., or the Biscuits come into town. And theres pretty much always someone (same person?) selling gas. Seen it for a few years now. I loved the guitar effects at the end of Queen of Everything. Haven't given much of the new album a listen, may have to pick it up. I like the Jason Adler version a little bit better which is up on etree i think but both are great pulls. Thank you tapers!
Reviewer: spwal - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - February 5, 2008
Subject: excellent show.
second edit: ok, initial excitement of having the show up has passed....still an awesome show and a great recording by alex! The synth bass on Yodelittle sounded cooler in concert imho, but still awesome version....

just a great setlist, a must have show.


ya, wtf with the baloons, they did that last time, not a good idea generally, and a worse idea in front of the state house.

was a great show expect the guy sitting behind me that started screaming at the poor dude setting up equipment before the show even started...other than that Punchline was probably the best i've ever heard! btw, cops were outside after show because some guy was dishing out nitrus balloons..on Tremont st. downtown boston...great idea

This was one of the best shows ive ever seen. the highlight was the entire show but probably singing onstage with them for the encore
Reviewer: Spamalope - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - February 4, 2008
Subject: AP Representin'
Crystal clear sound, less than 48 hour turnaround, not only to BTree but archive! and as usual, I can actually trust where the track breaks are.

Add to that an incredible setlist on a tour where they're playing really well and... well... A+
Reviewer: moeman1700 - - February 4, 2008
Subject: moe. on fire
I have not heard the recording, but I thought the show itself - close to 3.5 hours total music - was the best I have heard. Al was on fire, the selections were excellent, although I always want to hear Recreational Chemistry and Timmy Tucker, and the band had lots of energy. A long long segue between tunes in the second set touched several melodies. Overall, totally excited to catch them again soon, perhaps in Northampton, MA.
Thanks for the recording.

this was a good show. i had balcony seats but it was still a great experience. except for the cops outside when it was over. i was stoked when they played yodelittle.
